I LOVE my raw vegan cheesecake, especially that zebra technique looks so interesting.
I had assumed that there was some intricate skewer work involved in obtaining the zebra pattern. Instead the method was even more fascinating and involved repeatedly dropping a tablespoons of batter in a circle alternating with two different color of batter/cream to somehow miraculously produce this gorgeous striped Zebra effect !!
You can try the zebra technique with other vegan cakes too.
This “Roselle Pineapple Coconut Cheesecake” had a very strong Roselle- Ruby of the plant kingdom- and coconut aroma, these are definitely the healthy, good kinds of fat from heart-healthy fruits, nuts and coconut.
